    I bought this item because I have previously bought and love the original Crownette item this is based on. Sadly these are no longer available except as "new old" stock and I have only recently been able to get it in black and as I wanted a new item in white ordered it. In comparison with the original U.S. made item it feels less robust. The powernet fabric has the identical, pretty lace pattern to the Crownette garter belt which means it matches well with stretch and/or firm control lace panties. Overall it feels slightly softer than the Crownette item and it is really very pleasant to wear all day. The actual garter clips also feel a little less robust by comparison so it will be interesting to see how these wear. I also felt the adjusting clips might be a little flimsy but they actually work really well. They clip down tightly onto the garter strap itself which is really useful because they tend to be less likely to slacken off (which requires a manual adjustment of your stocking tension) and they are much less likely to flip up when pulling your panties on over the top (which is how I wear this item i.e. rather than putting panties on first with the garter belt on top as the item is displayed in the advertising). This may seem like a minor technical point but I find it a nuisance when the adjusting clips flip up so I am actually very happy with this product so far. I wear this with National shear run resistant support stockings (which are a fantastic item) under trousers all day at work as I am on my feet and I have found this to be an exceptionally comfortable item that offers what I would describe as "pleasant" support (not too firm and not too loose either) when compared with my open bottomed girdles. Size wise I ordered 34 and it seems true to the Crownette sizing which fits perfectly.

    very comfortable to wear .

    must wear compression stockings and the garters don't hold them they keep popping off and front garters could be some shorter for thigh his very comfortable to wear and reasonably priced.

              Comments about Figure Flattering Garter Belt by Instant Shaping®:

              After being told to start wearing support stockings, I tried a few different garter belts with them. Support stockings can exert a downward pull on a garter belt, but this one stays in place well. It is much more comfortable than I thought it would be. The lace makes it breathable. I did have to order it several sizes smaller than my actual waist measurement. (That might not be necessary for a fit, slender person!)

                Firm support and keeps hose in place all day or night.
                Works best in evening wear.never have to worry about hose sagging.
                Love the product and will buy another.

                      Garter belt/girdles are easy to find and very comfortable under skirts and dresses but with loose fit pants they are a must if you love stockings.
